It can be found on Amazon.com for as low as 2.98 used (my copy was a gift from someone, who purchased it used, which I'm 100% on board with, because I don't need a new book to abuse!).
There's a Jean Luc Picard pattern in there I'll get to eventually, too, but I've had just about enough stitching on black (and of course, my next work project is a WIP on black,, I do have good lighting there).
The one thing that nearly killed me was the black on black stitching - the collar, hair, shadows are all black on black, not just negative space, and wow, was that rough.
There was a priest at "my" (my grandparents') church when I was in high school that cross stitched NASA/Space scenes on black, and as much as I did not like Father George, I have a whole lot more respect for him now!
But on my day off, when I was going to spend 100% of my time on the TV Liquor cabinet, I got a nice finish in.
I plan on finishing it with a black frame and black mat. Hopefully I'll get that done, soon, to hang in my office. This is definitely one of those "much better from further away" pieces! :)

And a gif, because I cannot help myself.
